It would be nice to get a CB for my car as well, may as well add a CB antenna to the ham antenna. Why not just start an antenna farm on the roof of my car :brow:

Lol, sounds like a mess. Monroe is pretty good, wonder why it failed? Can't be because of "Rust" :-p

they had surface "rust" kinda peppered in there but i maintain that the welds, or lack thereof, led to premature failure. that or the air Crapwagon caught this weekend (oops). but then they shoulda failed wayy ealier this week.

Replaced 4 yr old battery with Optima Redtop 25, 720 CCA.

Old battery kept dropping voltage, setting off the alarm or resetting the dash clock or putting the Kenwood radio into protect mode. Suspected it was a cell shorting out - load test confirmed this.

I have had mine since 2003 or 2004 and it's been in 5 different Subarus, and still starts strong even in the cold. I have a feeling you'll like it!

I talked to my parts man about the same thing - apparently they've improved their quality control in manufacturing. Good news.

Fixed the windshield wipers, heater fan and instrument lighting.
It is quite nice to not only see how fast I am going but also where I am going ;)

I don't know which was more "invigorating" standing on my head to reach the relays up in and under the drivers side dash or dissembling the whole thing from left to right to find them in the first place.

The manual by Haynes does not give their location.

The manual by Chilton does not even acknowledge their existence in text or in the wiring diagrams.

I took mine apart to get to the timing cover o-rings that were dumping oil out at a rate of about a quart per 100 miles. :eek:

Ordered parts on Friday, they'll be in tomorrow, hopefully be all sealed up and back together by Wednesday! :D

BRAT had the drainplug on the radiator disentigrate....ugh. After a couple trips to Napa, Orielly, and finally Autozone its obvious that my radiator is NOT from an 86 Brat (though it works great, and fits like a glove), and that the part number for the actual one (Dorman 61114) is NOT what I need. What I did was a 12 1.25 oil drain plug w/ rubber washer...works like a charm of course. Now, what the hell is this radiator, lol...because ALL the other subaru's I lookup up from that era all used that same Dorman that doesn't fit? hmmm...wierd....

I kindly suggest you to Post a couple of Photos -in different angles- of your Radiator here; so we could see it and maybe someone could identify it for you.

Kind Regards.

Posted 02 October 2012 - 08:19 PM

Drove 2000 miles moving from CO to FL....
Averaged 33mpg and the only hiccup (if you can call it that) was having to add about 2qts of oil during the trip. Gotta re-seal that EA, or do an EJ swap. Bumped the mileage up to 236k with that drive.

2k miles; no a/c; no cruise control; one very distressed kitty :)
